| O-T Lounge|| pressure washer blowing water hoses? - Casty McBoozer on 7/20/14 at 11:50 am|
I borrowed a little Honda pressure washer from a coworker, it has a GCV160 engine on it. It's not anything high-end, I think it's 2400 psi.
I was running the pressure washer for a little while, put it down to climb up a ladder for a minute, and the end of the hose separated from the threaded end....

We went vacationing in Destin at the end of May. Some new toll-by-plate system took a picture of my license plate and they've sent me a bill. It's not much, just $5.50 ($1.50 for each pass and a $2.50 administration fee). Apparently the admin fee can be avoided if you create a pre-paid account :lo...

I've been in I.T. for about 10 years. I can never seem to get on with a big company (unless willing to take helpdesk job and I'm not). I've come close to landing good paying I.T. jobs with larger companies, but it hasn't worked out. I always end up in small companies where there's no room to advan...

So I'm playing with this HP All-in-one (I hate the idea of all-in-ones, I didn't have anything to do with the purchase decision and it's not for me) and I'm noticing it's pretty slow.
I pop open the device manager and I'm expecting to see a traditional hard drive, but I see a ST1000LM014-1EJ164...

Most of the music players want to read the metadata from your files and display based on Artist/Album/Genre/etc.
This doesn't really work for me, I have my music already sorted into folders for specific reasons and I don't need a program reorganizing it for me.
I don't think my needs are rid...

My wife gets a letter in the mail two weeks ago saying that she needs to call this phone number AFTER 6PM ON SUNDAY NIGHT to determine whether she needs to show up to court Monday morning.
Whisky. Tango. Foxtrot?
She calls last Sunday, the message says she does not have to report. Sweet.

But I do wonder, why would that be the default? It makes no sense, and it...
